Yet another SF 'hound in Manhattan

After many years - I will be in NYC on business. I'll be staying in Midtown around W 56th and 7th Ave.

Since this is a business trip I can’t devote as much time to gluttony as I would like to.

I am clearly looking for things NYC excels at. We have excellent Vietnamese, Chinese, Indian and Middle Eastern out here and of course lots of high end destination restaurants like TFL, Manresa, etc.

So far I've come up with the following for a 4 day trip:

I'd like to invite any critique and/or additional recommendations or replacements.

Pastrami at Katz's – I understand you have to ask for the pickled tomatoes as an accompaniment


The porterhouse at Peter Luger in Brooklyn, or at least the burger at lunch

Pizza - Keste - and Company -,

Sichuan food court in Flushing –

Ippudo – I understand this is a chain but a superlative one.

Yasuda – must-visit – comes highly recommended by many friends, I plan to go by myself and sit at the bar.

Bagels - H&H, Russ and Daughters

Any place you’d recommend for East Coast oysters?

I would also like to get a recommendation for breakfast around my hotel aside from Norma’s.

Cheers and thanks in advance
